Full Tilt Poker

Full Tilt Poker is one of the most well known online poker sites. Opened in 2004, they have been on eof the biggest and most well known poker sites around the world, even drawing the attention of the US Government. They were purchased in 2012 by PokerStars, and players can rely on the reputations of these two very well known names for their poker needs. They no longer accept US players, but international players can find them one of the biggest and best online poker sites currently running.

Software and Security

Full Tilt has never been lacking in the software. They offer some of the best tools and options for players. They have not only the most popular tools such as notes, statistics, easy to access personalization, and more. Their software is stable and fast, so players can get the most enjoyment out of their play.

Full Tilt claims to have been developed by poker players, for poker players. And this is even more obvious thanks to the details paid to some features. This includes multi table play up to 18 tables, as well as a mini-view that's actually useful. Players can save their favorite layout, and set the software to a number of personalized smart options such as automatic rebuys and more.

However the Full Tilt's software isn't only about fancy tools and table settings. Players can rely on a fast, stable, and secure platform. While all the fantastic graphics and useful tools make gameplay enjoyable, players can feel safe and secure with Full Tilt's safety and security measures keeping your banking information secure.

Games and Tournaments

Full Tilt takes full advantage of their popularity. The large population of players on at all hours makes it very easy to find players no matter what tables and stake levels you choose to play at. Just like every other site, the low stake and no limit Texas Hold Em tables are the most heavily populated.

However, I found a great selection of full tables in just about every single offering they had. Full Tilt offers not only the most common Texas Hold em, Omaha, and 7 Card stud, but a variety of other games. These include 5 Card Stud, Heads Up Poker, Draw Poker, as well as a variety of mixed games including Razz, HORSE, HOSE and more. There's a wide selection of stake levels as well as high and low variations. No matter what games you prefer, you're pretty much guaranteed to find a table you enjoy at Full Tilt.

And while their cash game tables are impressive, they do not disappoint with their tournament offerings. Players can find the typical list of sit and gos, multi table and free roll tournaments, as well as a wide variety of satellite and guaranteed tournaments. Players can find tournament in every level- ranging from some high stake tables down to a wide variety of microstake tournaments. These low-buy in tables are also typically feature much looser play than the higher level tables. There's plenty of soft and loose play- but for players looking for more stiff competition they can find it here as well.


Full Tilt's first deposit bonus is fairly standard. They offer 100% up to $600. It's generous, but doesn't really stand out. However, on top of this bonus cash they offer a whole new players welcome package including free tournament tokens, and entries into $50k Free Rolls.

However, where Full Tilt Poker does excel is ongoing reload bonuses. Not only is the first deposit bonus 100% up to $600, but the first three deposits have this bonus!

A big problem with some online poker bonuses is that while they give you a large amount of free cash, it is often difficult, if not impossible to clear. I found Full Tilt's clearing options to be reasonable and easy to manage. Players earn Full Tilt Points by playing cash games, sit and goes, and buying tournament entries. In order to qualify for points you must contribute to the raked hand. For every $1 in MTT and SNG fees, players earn 10 points. To clear $10 players must earn 250 Full Tilt Points, which is cleared into your balance in $20 or less increments.


Full Tilt offers the most popular options for deposit options. Their options include Credit Card, Neteller, Skrill, Instadebit, ClickandBuy, Entro pay, WebMoney, Click2Pay, Cash Transfer and more. Withdrawals are processed via Visa, Skrill, Click2Pay, Instadebit, Click and Buy, and more. Full Tilt makes it very easy for players to deposit to their account, with an easy to access cashier. Players can also keep track of their bonuses in the cashier, to see how much progress they have made. No matter how players choose to deposit, they're guaranteed to find banking secure, easy, and hassle free.

Customer Service

Full Tilt doesn't let players down when it comes to finding the answers to their questions. They keep a very detailed FAQ where players can find the answers to their questions sorted into easy to navigate support page. They keep quite a detailed page, including easy to find Terms of Service for more detailed answers of their more detailed problems. To contact support, they offer email contact which has a posted 48 hour turn around time. The customer service staff I spoke to were very courteous and friendly.
